|My Biggest Let-downs|
Here's a list of HUGE let downs in my life. Bands I love(d) and
albums that just weren't what I
I mean, I can't say I didn't see it coming after what happened to A7X and Atreyu, their OC breatheren,
it still made me sad to see this Arena-rock as their final album before the break up.
|2||From Autumn to Ashes|
Abandon your Friends
I guess it took an album for Frances to figure out that he could write good music, sing well, and scream
with some nuts because I loved Holding the Wolf By the Ears, but this was weak sauce.
|3||All That Remains|
The routine castration of metal...
|4||Between the Buried and Me|
The Great Misdirect
Personally, I thought Colors was a fuckin' MASTERPIECE. This was back to their old, churning and
chugging ways. There's just not enough memorable material here compared to Colors.
|5||Drop Dead, Gorgeous|
Worse Than a Fairy Tale
The dude's voice just isn't solid enough to hold this album together. And without the intensity, the
thing just doesn't do it for me.
I know that Anthony Green left the band well before this album, but how come when the singer leaves,
the rest of the band loses it's testicles... I don't get it. I was expecting more from this debut after ALL
hype from their EP's.
|7|| ||Coheed and Cambria|
Good Apollo, I'm a Burning Star IV...
WELCOME HOME is the greatest song Coheed ever wrote. I heard this song, and got SO pumped for this
album. Then I heard the rest of the album and was let down SO bad. This is their weakest album by far,
but for some reason, they have a few diamonds in the rough. It's not terrible, no, but it's just not up to
|8||It Dies Today|
The Catiff Chior is one of my favorite metalcore albums. This follow up was simply following the trend
hardcore and metal bands going softer. And not well enough to make it great.
|9||Poison the Well|
I don't know, just not really my cup of tea. They were intense enough to keep me listening when they
were hardcore, but this sort of indie-rock-hardcore thing they did just bored me. And the fact that
can't pull off most of it live because they are a 3-piece off it. They play with 2 random people, and have
pick and chose the songs because of all the different instruments they aren't going to play live... Not a
of that school of thought when writing an album.
This has only been out a few days and I'm already disappointed in it. They totally stepped the intensity
down. This is a much slower, much more churning album. It just does not excite at all.
|I'm with you on 18V. James Hart new band is balls too|
|C'mon 3 wasn't so bad|
|i really like sirens. it had to grow on me, but i like it.|
side note: their vocalist had something wrong with his throat, like strep or something when they recorded, and it was easier for him to sing than scream.might be an excuse, but at least that's hat i heard.
|3 was good, but the vocals were TERRIBLE. It's not that he doesn't have a good voice, but it's like mixing All That Remains with Beyonce or some shit. Pop-vocals to the max.|
I agree with most of these, even 9 to a certain extent, although it really grew on me over time. Now I love it.
|7 is awesome, seriously...worst album?|
Drop Dead, Gorgeous were always a boring band.
3 actually was disappointing.
|its funny how wrong you are about 9, and how right you are about 4...|
|3 is trash, 4 is not that bad, and honestly 5 was the album that gave them some sort of identity....|
|5 paved the way for better things but i still don't really like it|
|7 is their 2nd best.|
|6 was really good tbh. it's the new disc that should be here.|
|4 is better than Colors.|
|i get tired of tommy rogers vox easily|
|7 is good youre retarded|
|4 has more memorable stuff than on colors wtf fail.|
|I actually liked 1,2,3,6 and 8|
|Yeah that FATA album was actually pretty good too|
|looking back on the things i've done|
i was trying to be someone
i played my part
and kept u in the dark
now let me show u the shape of my heart
|Having Letdowns? |
